Faced with rising costs of higher education, many students are deciding not to purchase required course materials, therefore going through their semester without the tools they need to learn and succeed. Some 50 percent of students say avoiding or delaying these purchases negatively impacts their grades. As a result, more institutions are taking advantage of digital tools and platforms, which provide students and faculty with immersive, engaging content while providing required materials to all students on or before the first day of classes at a lower cost.

Attend this web seminar to learn more about the benefits of these digital platforms for institutions, faculty and students, and some strategies for implementing digital course materials on any campus. Our presenters will discuss key findings of a survey about the topic, and highlight case study examples from three different institutions who are using digital course materials successfully.
